When you talk about the leadership of your organisation do you say ‘we’ or ‘they’? If you say ‘they’ you do not see yourself as a leader nor do you see that you have an overall responsibility for taking the organisation forward. This self perception communicates upwards, downwards and outwards. The number one barrier to leadership is seeing yourself as ‘less than’ or ‘different from’ or ‘not connected to’. Be courageous-see yourself as a leader.
